Hi! I am curious to know if Rosenwald had a Kindergarten program in 1963. I attended backthen but I thaought when we started school back then we went straight to 1st grade, because I honestly do not remember being in kindergarten. Can you please let me know. I remember Rosenwald, it was a nice school. I rememder how well the school luches use to be, it was real oldfashioned down home cooking. those ladies who cooked there could really cook. I am an Activities Director and I have been to inspired to write a memoir about my life withthe elderly. I often think of Rosenwald and the cherised memories that come to mind.
